Dr. Rahul Pandit demonstrates the use of intraoperative OCT technology to assist with deep anterior lamellar keratoplasty (DALK). OCT can help to delineate corneal thickness at different times during lamellar dissection, and can also be used to confirm the position of the air cannula in the deep stroma prior to air injection. Verifying that the cannula tip is near Descemet’s membrane helps ensure that the big bubble dissection will be successful.
